NJ City Repeals Rule Limiting Contracts Campaign Contributors

Press of Atlantic City (1/4): “In a unanimous vote, Wildwood City Commission on Wednesday scrapped its 2-year-old campaign financing ordinance.”

“”The vote repeals an ordinance approved in October 2012, which prevented those contributing to political campaigns of those seeking city or county office for accepting municipal contracts.

“No one from the public commented on the ordinance at the morning meeting. Commission members didn’t discuss it.
Often referred to as pay-to-play rules, the Wildwood ordinance and others approved in Cape May County prevented those holding professional services contracts from contributing to the elections of those who would decide those contracts.”
